    Default Average age to toilet train

    Just thinking ahead and I have no clue about toilet training. When do most children (girls in particular) toilet train? New Bub is due a month before DD turns 2. I'll have two in nappies right?

    Depends on your cultural background. As an Indian my kids were toilet trained late at 18-24mths. But early by modern Australian standards.

    I will be starting TT my third around 12-13mths.

    From what I can gather, all kids are different. My ds is 3 and we still have the odd accident but on the whole is doing pretty well.

    Kids vary so much on when they are ready. There's no magic age! Seems like a lot of parents start training between 2.5 and 3 years old, though I see no reason to wait if you want to try earlier.

    My DS is on the spectrum and wasn't ready until well after he turned 4.

    Have a bit of a Google about signs of readiness and get your DD familiar with the toilet by taking her in when you go.

    My dd is 19 mo and we're starting to toilet train now. She's been showing interest in sitting in the toilet, is aware before she poos, and has the language to communicate when she's about to go so I thought it was worth a try at this point.

    Default Average age to toilet train

    DD will be 4 soon and was in nappies until 3.5. Trained really easily (had accidents when we tried earlier but at this age she had maybe 2 accidents and was trained within 2 weeks (day).

    She still wears night nappies as her nappies are never dry in the morning!
    @Mamasupial having both I. Nappies isn't such a bad thing if you can afford it. I would have found the newborn days with DS so much more stressful if I had to be taking DD to the toilet all the time.

    My CHN said between 3 and 3 1/2 is normal. I tried DD1 at about 2 1/2 but she wasn't ready. At 3 we tried again and had only 2 accidents in two weeks. However she has been night dry since before 1. I thought she would TT early because of that but no such luck.
